Wellsboro, a town of beauty and culture rich in natural resources and the County Seat of Tioga County, is a beautiful gas-lit town in the Endless Mountains which are part of the Northern Tier (approximately four hours from Philadelphia, five hours from Pittsburgh and three hours from Harrisburg). Founded in 1806 by settlers from Delaware, Maryland and Philadelphia, it was incorporated in 1830.
The town was named in honor of Mary Wells, wife of one of the original settlers, Benjamin Wister Morris. Noted for beautiful elms, maple trees and wide boulevards with gas lights, this is a village of pleasant homes and hospitable people.
